Szechuan French Green Beans

FacebookPinterestStumbleUponGoogle+TumblrRedditShare

A homemade Szechuan sauce is good on anything…or even by itself! You can liven up any vegetable with this sauce and it is a great side or main dish. It covers the sweet & salty and umami to the tenth. I can’t get enough of this sauce. I make it on any veggies I have or even with just plain rice. It is super super delicious. When I made these Szechuan French Green Beans I ate the whole pan…DH had to fend for himself that night! This is a Vegetarian & a Vegan Recipe too.

I have made this too many times to count as a simple side and even when I just feel like a veggie overload. I am entering this in “House Favorites: Vegan” for this month, hosted by Claire on Chez Cayenne.
